Re: Old design detail on PPP tubes.......

They are there to supress parasitic oscillations in the VHF/UHF range. The tubes have plenty of gain there, and the connecting wires have a resonant frequency in that range... so a parallel audio circuit becomes a push-pull UHF oscillator! Sometime a low value resistor is enough, sometimes it's a combination, often a choke wound on a 47 Ohm resistor.
Not all amps use them... not all amps are stable, either...
